SharePoint 2007 RTM Documentation & Examples

So Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) has been out in RTM for a month or so.  It’s a sweet product and gives companies a helluva lot of value out of the box — and scads more value as you begin to customize and adapt it for use in a company’s business environment.

Unfortunately, that’s tough to do without documentation that matches the current release.  The SDK dox were just put up on MSDN a couple weeks ago, but they’re not available for download, and none of the various example packs or starter kits have been updated.  That sure makes it tough to try and stay on the bleeding edge of releases, but then I suppose that’s why they call it the “bleeding edge.”

Folks at Microsoft say the next wave of documentation and starter kits will be released at the end of the month — two months after RTM.  That’s frustrating and makes it a heck of a lot harder to get things rolled out in the latest version.  Bah.
